With an amazingly lightweight design and all the sounds you’ll need, the Nord Stage 3 Compact is an outstanding performance instrument. This fifth-generation Stage Series keyboard offers the award-winning Nord Lead A1 Synth Engine (with sample playback), the renowned Nord C2D Organ Engine, an advanced piano section, and access to hands-on effects — everything you need for a stellar performance in any setting. Factor in Nord’s 73-note, semi-weighted waterfall keybed, and it’s clear that the Nord Stage 3 Compact is a world-class performance keyboard.
Fast, smooth playability from the semi-weighted waterfall keybed
The Nord Stage 3 Compact sports Nord’s semi-weighted waterfall keybed, one of the fastest keybeds you’ll get your hands on. The rounded tips on the keys give this keyboard a smooth feel that’s perfect for fast organ and synth passages, and every performing keyboardist at Sweetwater loves the lighter overall weight it helps provide. This keybed has a note range of E to E.
Piano, organ, and synth sound engines onboard
From expansive grand pianos to searing synthesizer leads, the Nord Stage 3 Compact does it all. You’ll be able to cover a wide range of musical styles in a single session, and a slew of dedicated function controls makes it easy to tweak your sounds until they’re perfect for your application. And with two independent instrument slots, you can load up two pianos, two organs, two synths, and effects, all simultaneously to create huge layered sounds.
Choose your favorite instruments from the Nord Piano Library
The Nord Stage 3 Compact boasts 2GB of memory for sounds from the Nord Piano Library. This is Nord’s collection of painstakingly emulated instruments including acoustic and electric pianos, harpsichords, clavinets, and much more. While the factory-included sounds on the Stage 3 Compact are outstanding, you’ll be able to pick and choose even more from the Nord Piano Library.
